A few photographs from those hours will give a sense of the scenery and spare you (and me) any more words.

reflections of the chains which operate the metal plates and
the steel guides.

leaving Lock E15, with chain reflection
in the upper left corner.
|The view under one of the two guard gates with an abandoned bridge in the distance as we near the intersection of the canal and the Mohawk River just east of Little Falls. I think this is Guard Gate E3.|
|Looking back at Five-Mile Dam on the Mohawk River. The Grande Mariner has completed its run on the canal and, heading west toward Little Falls, has rejoined the river.|
What a beautiful day for a cruise.
